First of all I want to sincerely apologize for the lack of any updates or correspondence for the past few months. It was really unfair of me not to make more of an effort to keep in touch with fans of the project, particularly those of you who generously donated. I also want to say thank you to everyone who had kind words and kept their heads on while I was absent.
There's very good news for people with a vested interest in the game: The game is very alive, and more-so than ever. In fact, due to some very fortuitous changes in my living situation (my father has agreed to give me shelter and food until grad school starts), I plan to work on the game full-time for at least the next six months. As a result, I plan on ramping up the quality and professionalism of the game itself, this blog, the voting system, and my work and update schedule very significantly.
I'll be putting up a good-sized game update some time before Thursday next week, along with the new breeding season website and voting system. As previously stated, everyone who donated before for a feature that wasn't added will get the opportunity to reassign their donations with the new system. Many more details are to follow.
Sorry for the wait :(. Thanks for your support :).
